Pork tenderloin is one of my favorite meats to cook. It’s tender, delicious and not at all difficult to prepare. This particular dish is simple, yet elegant. I serve it with a salad and over mashed potatoes.
If you’re worried that it isn’t healthy because it’s pork, don’t be. Pork tenderloin is good for you. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported:
Pork, which often gets overlooked as a leaner entree possibility, has officially joined the list.
Pork tenderloin is now certified with the American Heart Association’s “Heart Check” mark, indicating it qualifies as an extra-lean, heart-healthy protein.
In fact, ounce for ounce, pork tenderloin is as lean as a skinless chicken breast. A 3-ounce portion of pork tenderloin contains less than 3 grams of fat and 120 calories. Isn’t it great when you can please desire for flavor and good health with the same meal?
